There’s still a month to go until the Season 2 premiere of “Bates Motel,” which is why we at Zap2it were so excited to see a screener for the first episode of the new season, “Gone But Not Forgotten,” land on our doorstep. After watching it as quickly as we could, we decided to share a couple spoilery tidbits about the upcoming return to Norman and Norma Bates’ life.
Miss Watson’s death remains a mystery. Though the murder of Miss Watson is a main plot point of the first episode, don’t expect it to get resolved right off. In fact, the premiere might make you question whether or not Norman actually was the one who killed his teacher.
Things are going pretty well for Norma. Surprisingly, Norma is actually pretty happy in this episode. That is, until she isn’t.
Norman is obsessed with his taxidermy. There’s a jump forward in time in the Season 2 premiere, which means that Norman has had that much more time to get more skilled at taxidermy. The fact that it even creeps Norma out should be a tell.
Bradley goes very, very dark. A few big things happen with Bradley in the Season 2 premiere, and they’re such shockers that we don’t even want to come close to spoiling them. Let’s just say that this is a very different girl than the one viewers met in Season 1.
“Bates Motel” reopens March 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
